Klay Thompson said he thinks about the 2016 NBA Finals every day.
"I always thought about it. We were so close last year … a game away," Thompson said. "I would be lying to you if I didn’t think about it all the time."

As for Thompson, his usage rate in the playoffs has dropped to just 21.0, which is down from 26.2 in the regular season. May 25 - 4:18 PM

Klay Thompson's struggles continued in Monday's Game 4 win over the Spurs, scoring 10 points on 3-of-13 shooting.

He grabbed six rebounds with one assist and one triple in 34 minutes. Thompson hasn't been himself in the postseason with averages of 14.4 points on 38.3 percent shooting, a far cry from his regular season scoring average of 22.3 points on 46.8 percent shooting. With nine days off until the NBA Finals, Thompson's struggles will be a major talking point with a potential matchup with the Cavaliers looming.

Klay Thompson scored 17 points with six rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

He's still not quite as aggressive as usual, but Thompson continues to make winning plays on both ends. The All-Star hasn't been concerned about his underwhelming scoring postseason and obviously his playing time will be very high when the games are close. Will the games ever be close, though?
May 20 - 11:36 PM

The Warriors are highly confident that Klay Thompson will snap out of his recent shooting slump.

After scoring only six points on 2-of-11 shooting in Game 1, Thompson is now averaging 15.0 points on 38.8 percent shooting, including 36.0 percent from 3-point territory in the playoffs. During the regular season, Klay averaged 22.3 points, while 46.8 percent from the floor and 41.4 percent from downtown. It's likely only a matter of time before Thompson starts heating up. Also, he's been phenomenal on the defensive end. "His stat line, offensively, wasn’t what most people expect, nor was it what he expected," said coach Mike Brown. "When you go back and you watch that tape, defensively he was a monster."
May 16 - 12:43 PM

Klay Thompson made 2-of-11 from the field for six points with four rebounds, three assists, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the Spurs on Sunday.

His offense has been a nightmare for most of the postseason. In his previous games in this postseason, he only had a 47.5 effective field goal percentage on catch-and-shoot attempts, which is way down from his 61.8 during the season. Offense aside, Klay's defense has actually been great in the past month, but he was biting on pump fakes and just wasn't quite there today. We'll see if he can get better in Game 2 on Tuesday.
May 14 - 6:46 PM

Klay Thompson broke out of his slump in Game 4 vs. the Jazz on Monday with 21 points on 9-of-16 shooting, adding two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one triple.

Thompson was averaging 15.4 points on 38.2 percent shooting in the playoffs prior to Monday and he hit rock bottom in Game 3 when he hit just one shot. However, coach Mike Brown made it a point to get him going tonight and the move payed dividends. "He’s just got to stay with it," Brown said before the game. "We have some things in mind that may help him out [Monday] night, but he’s still a threat on the floor, and he still opens the game for everybody else." Thompson will look to build off this 21-point performance in the Western Conference Finals. Kevin Durant added 18 points, six boards, five rebounds and two triples for the Warriors.

Klay Thompson made 1-of-9 from the field for six points with one rebound and one steal in 39 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.

He's kind of disappeared on the stat sheet in this series, averaging just 11.7 points per game so far. On the other hand, his defense has been as good as ever and he'll obviously get heavy burn in the rotation. That said, his usage rate is trending down to go with the efficiency dip, so he may be somewhat quiet now that Kevin Durant looked like Kevin Durant.
May 6 - 11:42 PM

Klay Thompson went 6-of-16 from the field and 2-of-2 from the stripe on his way to 15 points on Sunday, adding one 3-pointer, three boards, two assists, one steal, one block and two turnovers.

Thompson missed a lot of makeable shots in this one, so he shouldn't have any trouble bouncing back with a more efficient line in Game 2 on Wednesday. Ian Clark made up for Thompson's inefficiency, scoring a post-season career-high 12 points on 4-of-5 shooting off the bench to go with two boards, two triples and one steal, but he's too inconsistent to trust in most settings.
Apr 16 - 6:42 PM

Klay Thompson will rest on Monday vs. the Jazz.

He's played a lot of minutes for the Dubs this season, so he'll get a much deserved night off. With Thompson on the sidelines, Stephen Curry (knee), Kevin Durant and Draymond Green will all see a slight uptick in usage, and Patrick McCaw will likely find his way back into the starting five. Ian Clark should also see some increased minutes sans Thompson.

Klay Thompson posted 41 points with three assists, two rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot in Tuesday's 121-107 win against the Timberwolves.

Thompson connected for seven 3-pointers on 14 attempts, as the Splash Brothers combined for 10 triples against the defensively challenged Wolves. He has managed at least four triples in each of his past six games, and two of more 3-pointers in 16 consecutive outings. Thompson is finishing up strong for his fantasy owners, particularly those in rotisserie formats.
Apr 5 - 1:40 AM

Klay Thompson hit 10-of-20 shots and five 3-pointers for 25 points, five rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Tuesday's big 113-106 win over the Rockets.

Klay had an eight-point dud on Friday, but has been out of this world otherwise. And the best news is that the Warriors plan on playing everyone on Wednesday against the Spurs. "Guys are good to go, the schedule has been fine and we'll go in there and see what we can do," said coach Steve Kerr.
Mar 28 - 11:50 PM

Klay Thompson dropped a game-high 31 points on 12-of-18 shooting on Sunday, going 7-of-11 from deep with two rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 35 minutes.

Klay struggled on Friday with eight points on 3-of-14 shooting, but otherwise he's been on fire -- excluding that dud, he's averaging 27.7 points and 5.3 triples on 57.1 percent shooting over his previous six games. He single-handedly won the 3-point category for plenty of owners this week, making a ridiculous 21 treys.
Mar 26 - 11:03 PM

Klay Thompson lit up the Thunder for 34 points and seven 3-pointers in Monday's 111-95 win over the Thunder.

This was Thompson's 19th career game with seven or more 3-pointers and that's four straight wins for the Warriors since their three-game losing streak. Thompson finished 12-of-21 from the field in 32 minutes with six rebounds, two assists and two steals, but his owners will want to make sure he's active for Tuesday's road game vs. Dallas on the second night of a back-to-back set. With Kevin Durant (knee) iffy to return for the regular season, Thompson's owners will continue to see a bump in production.
Mar 20 - 11:39 PM

Klay Thompson hit 8-of-11 shots and five 3-pointers on his way to a 21-point first quarter on Thursday, the seventh time in his career he's scored at least 20 points in a quarter.

He finished with 29 points, four rebounds, five assists and a block on 12-of-20 shooting in just 29 minutes. Klay's best quarter ever was a 37-point job against the Kings on Jan. 23, 2015 and he didn't even flirt with that one tonight. The Warriors won 122-92 and the game was never close, mainly because of what Klay did to the Magic at the opening bell.
Mar 17 - 1:18 AM

Klay Thompson scored 28 points on 10-of-22 shooting vs. the 76ers on Tuesday.

He hit five 3-pointers in 38 minutes, adding two rebounds, one assist and one turnover. Thompson has now scored 25+ points in four out of his last five games, and he's averaging 20.3 FGAs since Kevin Durant (knee) went down -- he averaged 18.3 FGAs in February and 16.2 FGAs in January. The peripheral stats haven't been there lately, but Thomson should be able to flirt with early-round value the rest of the way with an increased role on offense.
